Deeply fluent in the Mediterranean and American vernaculars and the modern forms of the California Tradition, Tichenor & Thorp design exceptional properties that integrate large-scale residences and luxurious gardens and landscapes into a singular, unified vision: house and landscape imagined as one complete expression for a given site and particular client.

Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs by Roger Davies and Brian Tichenor’s own masterly watercolors, drawings, and plans, and with a foreword by Pilar Viladas, architecture and design editor at Town & Country, Outside In shares “Hollywood’s best-kept secret” with the world.

Raun Thorp, a native Californian, worked with Peter and Allison Smithson in London and several noted Los Angeles–area firms, including Frank Gehry and Moore Ruble Yudell before co-founding Tichenor & Thorp. In addition to her multifaceted design work on the firm’s architecture projects and her spearheading of its interiors division, Thorp oversees the firm’s business development and operations.

M. Brian Tichenor, also a California native, worked as a project designer and manager for Moore Ruble Yudell and subsequently, in collaboration with landscape designer Nancy Goslee Power, completed more than a hundred gardens. Currently on the faculty of USC’s Graduate School of Architecture, he is actively involved with the Los Angeles Conservancy, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, the Huntington Library and Gardens, the Living Desert Museum, the Society of Architectural Historians, and the Cultural Landscape Foundation.

Douglas Woods, a Los Angeles native, is a consultant and private librarian specializing in architecture and the arts. He is the author of Classic Homes of Los Angeles, The California Casa, and co-author of Julius Shulman Los Angeles: The Birth of a Modern Metropolis
